In my sixties, I am getting more and more fascinated with coding and programming, staying always passionate about new development challenges!
However, at the end of the day, I don’t care so much, if I will be paid enough to add to my pension.
(Of course, It will be fine, to be able to replace my Late-2013-MacBook with that new one with the Mx Max. But this is not the top priority, …well, not right now...? )
Development is my passion. My daily routine is challenging, problem-solving, digging deeply, or learning new frameworks and tools.
As much as I can, I will keep coding. That’s my way of living…
